  • Can I swim in the ocean two months after torn retina repair?

    I had a retinal tear repaired by laser two months ago.  Would salt water from my 45-minute ocean swims damage the repaired area?


    After two months, your laser scarring around the retinal tear should be mature.  There is no harm for you to be swimming, whether in freshwater or salt water.
